With last year's models being cleared out, I can get the Denon AVR-2802 for about $80 more than the newer AVR-1803. The specs overall seem pretty similar. Here are the differences I see: The 2802 has the additional advantage of preouts, a bit more power (90 vs 80W), and on screen display. The 1803 has a nicer remote (although I'll be using a universal) and a front panel input (same total # though and I'd actually prefer it in the rear). They weigh about the same (with the 1803 being 0.2kg heavier). Any thoughts on these two? Has anyone compared them directly? They'll be used with a Paradigm Monitor 9 + SVS 5.1 setup. I'll be upgrading from a Denon AVR-2700, which I'm overall very happy with, but will likely give to my brother.
